For even more community, exercisers can sign up for one of Fit for Life's boot camps or upbeat Zumba dance-fitness classes.

At Gem-N-I Creations, cosmetologist Keonne Sullivan-Johnson has one goal: send her clients out the door looking even better than they did when they arrived.

Then, she sets out with her shears to tame and style the landscape of each coiffure. Sullivan-Johnson is also well-versed in the art of hair extensions and sewn weaves. She's even adept at makeup application for special events or nights on the town spent library hopping.

New York Dominican Beauty Salon evokes big-city glamour in its cozy Randallstown salon. After haircuts, stylists can blow out hair into flyaway-free ’dos and add all-over color or highlights.

K.I.N.G Massage's licensed massage therapist Kingston R. Holcomb enlists the tantalizing strokes of the Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to eliminate stress and relax clients. Surrounded by calming aqua walls, the musculature maestro orchestrates a symphony of serene sighs by incorporating soothing lotions and gentle, rolling strokes to the Swedish massage. Deep-tissue treatments employ firm, targeted pressure that dissolve chronic pain caused by repetitive motions or injury. The therapist encourages clients to communicate their comfort level throughout the deep-tissue visit, and clients should consume plenty of fluids before and after to help flush out toxins and goldfish loitering in the body.
